L'Oreal Elvive Styliste Root Lifting Mousse
Advantages: None really
Disadvantages: No lasting control
I have to say that I'm rather under whelmed with this styling mousse from L'Oreal and it is not a product that I would recommend to anyone. It is a pretty standard hair styling mousse but it does not have the staying power that I would want and therefore it cannot be relied upon to last the day or night. It cost £3.29 which I guess is not a lot but there are cheaper brands out there that will get better results. It comes in a fairly standard can with a pump action dispenser. The mousse itself is white in colour and reasonably thick and creamy with a rather chemical smell to it.
It certainly provides enough control when I first styled my hair and it massages into my hair easily. It also washes out very easily as well at the end of the day however to be honest that fact that it is not providing the hold that I would want means that I would gladly compromise on the ease of the removal in favour of a longer lasting performance.
It does not dry your hair out and initially I found that it gave my hair a bit extra volume and allowed me to scrunch up my hair to make it look fuller and more voluminous however by mid afternoon it was clearly starting to flag and it was not as if I had been rushing about all day in bad weather as it was a nice September day with no wind.
By the end of the day my hair was really beginning to flag and in the end I had to brush it out and tie my hair back to keep it looking presentable. I would not recommend this product for anybody really unless you have short hair that does not need as much control, otherwise go for something else.
Summary: Not recommended
